Mermaids exist in the dreams of us all and date back to ancient times in both historical notes and Greek mythology. Today they still fascinate us all.
One of my very favorite illustrators Jasmine Becket Griffith brings us the 3rd of her gorgeous coloring books filled with 55 beautiful mystical mermaids. Her books are professionally printed on gorgeous thick artist paper that is one-sided so you don’t have to worry about bleed-through.
We just received another amazingly gorgeous Jane F. Hankins coloring book that is Mermaid and underwater themed.
If you aren’t familiar with her books they are quite remarkable. A HUGE size 11×17 on 80pound artist quality paper. So, if you’ve been frustrated that you can’t use your fancy markers or paints, this is the book to do that all in. Each of the pages in all her books are perforated and spiral bound. Yes, they are more expensive than your average coloring book but once you have one in your hand you’ll know why.
Other titles in her collection include:
- The Imaginary Garden
- The Imaginary World (Filled with lots of Fairys)
- 25 Days of Christmas Magic – Includes the 12 Days of Christmas in Jane style of course!
- Meet the Artist Jane F Hankins
